Brush War: 2013 (Recruitment Thread)



After some of the epic continent- or ocean-wide conflicts we’ve looked at in the past, this will be a limited theater conflict in west Africa with four factions battling it out within the borders of the Republic of Mali. Orders will be given for a day at a time, being processed in 8-hour phases and interrupted when major unexpected engagements erupt to allow commanders to respond (at least, once news of the engagement reaches them). Fog of war is, was and will be very real – but unlike in the wars of distant history, generally the overall commanders will at least know something is going on.

The Mali Civil War refers to armed conflict that started from January 2012 between the northern and southern parts of Mali in Africa. On 16 January 2012, several insurgent groups began fighting a campaign against the Malian government for independence or greater autonomy for northern Mali, an area known as Azawad. The National Movement for the Liberation of Azawad (MNLA) had taken control of most of this region by April 2012. Things went from bad to worse for the Malian government after defeats and desertion in the field led to the President being ousted by a coup d’etat on 22 March. In the chaos that followed, three of Mali’s largest northern cities were overrun by the rebels and the MNLA ultimately declared Azawad’s independence from Mali on 6 April.

As the stunned Malian military licked its wounds and tried to re-organize, fighting broke out between the Islamist and Secular rebels over the former’s imposition of Sharia law within Azawad. Bolstered by training and contributions from jihadists outside of the region, the Islamists swiftly gained the ascendancy and by mid-July had seized most of the cities in northern Mali from their erstwhile allies. As the situation began to resolve itself and the ascendant Islamist faction began to turn its attention toward the southern regions of Mali, the government of Mali asked for foreign military help to retake the north. In October the United Nations Security Council approved an African-led force of approximately 3,000 troops to assist the army of Mali in combating the Islamist militants, and planning continued for an African-led International Support Mission in Mali (AFISMA) for an initial period of one year.

In January 2013 with the AFISMA deployment still in its planning stages the Islamists began a major push into southern Mali, driving the Malian army out of Konna and rapidly advancing on the military garrison town of Mopti. On 11 January, with the Malian military airport at Sevare under threat, the French military launched Operation Serval, intervening in the conflict
This is the point we are beginning the game, on the morning of 11 January 2013.
  • The Islamists have unleashed a major offensive to break the back of the Government defense, and success only fuels their military might.
  • The MNLA rebels have been driven back to isolated pockets on the outskirts of what was Azawad, but it would be a mistake to count them out of the fight until the last Tuareg is forced to bend the knee.
  • The Government is attempting to win back not just their nation, but also the prestige lost in this civil war. They have called for outside assistance, yet they still control the largest military force within the bounds of their nation; army, navy and air force.
  • The French military deployment is the smallest and begins entirely outside of the theater; their commander will need to cooperate closely with the Malian Government, especially during the early stages of their buildup.

Who will dictate the course of the brush war in Mali as 2013 unfolds?

But no pressure of course!

As ever, my aim is to be accuratish rather than perfectly historical - though in this case we do have better sources than most.

No interest in taking on the French forces yourself?

Must admit that the thought of playing the French is tempting,
but pull of RL is strong as well.

Fair enough in either case!

Give it some thought my friend, and let me know what you decide. I'll probably keep this open for a few days more to let people give it a good look over.

I would have taken the French, but I have a WWz thread to rejuvenate ... once I figure out how to make it work with less than half the players I anticipated.

I could advise the Jihadists, if that is needed.

Thanks for the offer! I'll make sure the Islamist player is aware (once we have one).

Your WWz game looks very interesting, though I've only had the time to scan the thread (very) briefly. I hope you get it up and running again; please let me know if I can help.

What we need is more players, but 2/3rds of the people who said they were interested never showed up. We are just about at the point where anyone coming in late would have a hard time catching up.

Well, if nobody takes the bad guys, I'll give it a shot. All the games here just seem to end so prematurely.

They do that, for many reasons (mostly real life), and it's always a shame.

I'm happy to put my hat in the ring for WWz if it would be useful?

Just let me know how I can help.

I didn't volunteer for this to try to pull you into another game while you are trying to run one!

There is a list of potential units for you to take charge of in the original thread -
http://www.armchairgeneral.com/forum...d.php?t=172544


and only St. Malo and "Location Unknown" are being used right now. If the others are too distant or complicated then I could also tell you about the group that is on Jersey right now.

Cheers Exo.

The way you've worded that, I'll see whether there is any more interest in the next half-day or so but you definitely have first dibs if you do want it.
